Security Safe Purchasing Guide

There was a time when the only demand for safes came from businesses like banks and hotels or wealthier private citizens. Back then, safes where rather expensive and most people didn’t have anything to protect that was valuable enough to warrant the expense – but times have changed.

Over the years, technological advances and increasing demand brought about by a number of factors, including political instability and the rising frequency natural disasters, have brought the price of security safes into reach for residential buyers.

Why Buy A Security Safe?

There are many reasons why the average homeowner might want to consider purchasing a safe, some of them less obvious than others. The fact that a safe offers peace of mind and protection from theft is obviously the most common reason to have a safe in your home, but there are other very compelling reasons to own one. Here are a few of the most common:

A house fire is easy one of the most disastrous events a homeowner could suffer through. Everything you own, your home, can vanish in an instant. While a safe may not be able to protect the structure, there is no reason why you should lose. Even installing a small safe in your home to store your most cherished valuables, whether they are family photos, heirlooms, or simply the documents you will need to get started on rebuilding your life and recovering from your tragedy, can help ease the heartache and devastation of a house fire.

Floods, plumbing disasters, and leaking roofs, among other things, can put your valuables at risk of water damage. Family photos, art, and textile heirlooms are just a few of the items that are most at risk in the event of flooding events. Having a water-tight safe offers the peace of mind that comes with knowing these items will all be safe and sound when you are finally able to retrieve them again.

Aside from the financial loss of stolen valuables, there are wider, more disturbing implications that come with having your home burglarized. As if losing your valuables isn’t bad enough, thieves can also steal documents from your home that contain extremely sensitive information that could be leveraged into further crimes, such as identity theft or fraud. By storing your valuables and documents in a security safe, you can rest assured that both your valuables and your identity/accounts are safe.

Many people don’t consider the fact that mold and mildew can damage their important documents and other items that are susceptible to these issues. By storing vulnerable items in a safe, you can keep them safe from the humidity and spores that promote the growth of these damaging agents.

The damage that vermin such as mice and insects can inflict on certain valuables and documents is immeasurable. Mice, rats, moths, and various insects will all happily make a meal of your most treasured goods and documents. Luckily, safe-cracking is a skill set that is a little bit beyond your average mouse!

Forgetfulness is a fact of life. One of the most annoying ways to lose something valuable is to do just that, simply lose it out of forgetfulness. By storing all of your important documents and valuables in one secure place, you will always know exactly where they are and that they are completely safe.

Without a safe in the home, you might be storing your valuables in a remote location, such as a safe deposit box. While this is a great way to keep your items and documents safe, it can be a bit of an inconvenience to retrieve them whenever you’d like.

With a home security safe, you can have all of the benefits of a safe deposit box without all of the hassle.
